You didn't reply to me, but atleast I find that movie to be great. It has elements that could be better sure, but overall it's a solid first entry. That said. I really want to watch the version where they didn't cut 20 minutes right before release. Probably would have reviewed better.Blade Runner 2049 is an obvious one. Not necessarily because I want sequels (I don't), but mostly because it was a rare example of a big studio taking a huge risk with a high-budget, but very niche film (remember, the first Blade Runner bombed hard in cinemas despite it's reputation).
I fear that Blade Runner's failure at the BO basically guaranteed that not a single big studio is going to take a risk like that again.
Why would you want a sequel to that monstrosity?
Warcraft actually didn't bomb though, it made a ton of money thanks to China. The reason it didn't get a sequel is because the movie itself is awful.
It's too bad Disney plus wasn't around when the original came out maybe they could've risked releasing it on the streaming service instead and that could've eaten up the costs. I miss Disney releasing action adventure movies like that weren't mcu or star wars films. I understand the budgets were way too high but the movies were certainly entertaining. We had Prince of Persia:Sands of Time , John Carter , and Lone Ranger. John Carter was easily the best out of the three but for me personally the movies were fun and enjoyable.Pan. The movie with Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard. I thought this was quite a good film and would have loved to have seen where else they could have taken it.
Yeah, that'd be good. I remember at the time of release they were talking up all the sequels and the first movie ends as if it is to be continued, but then it never was! I'm still waiting for the sequel and so forth. It'd be kind of like just having The first Lord of the Rings movie (Fellowship of the Ring) and then nothing following on from that.
This too. Actually this is probably the worst. It feels like such an epic film and it is so sad that we now supposedly can't see anymore from it. Each time I watch it I just feel sad. They should have just continued on and made other films from that.
This.Guys, as much as I enjoyed it and it reflects poorly on the market and films in general moving forward, Blade Runner 2049 bombing was at least good for the series. Blade Runner 1 stood perfectly on its own and by some minor miracle we ended up with a sequel 30 years later that sits snug and respectfully next to the original while also standing perfectly on its own. We've got these two beautiful films with nothing to tarnish it.
Imagine in some alternate reality where BR2049 was a mega-hit and we ended up getting 7 sequels to it turning the series into action mush. The GOT S8 of Blade Runner. Yuck. I ain't willing to gamble on that. Leave me with the two films we got. I'm happy.
